Email quotes taken out of context….

I’m an idiot. We all know this. Recently, I realized that I talk and write like a bigger idiot than I already thought I was. So over the past two days, I’ve compiled some ridiculous one liners that I’ve emailed to people. They’re completely out of context, which makes them sound even more ridiculous than they are, but it lends a certain je ne se quois to the everyday world of email, and also demonstrates how easy comedy comes when almost anything is taken out of context.
So for the next few moments, relax and take a leisurely stroll in the size 10 idiotic shoes that make up me life…..
